Sales and Service
Jamie said, "I would like to think that my experience within the industry will enable me to share my knowledge and experience with members and in that way make a difference to National Leisure.”
Jamie began his career in the swimming pool industry in 1988 working as a pool plant operator, whilst completing a mechanical engineering course. He later moved to Surex International in senior sales role, before joining London Swimming Pool Company (LSPC) as a sales and service engineer in 1998.

LSPC has been a member of National Leisure since 2008. “National Leisure is a great thing to be part of and I would whole-heartedly recommend other companies within the industry to take a look at the beneﬁts available to members as I know from experience it would be a good thing for them,” comments Jamie.
Highly regarded within the UK pool trade, members of National Leisure take an active part in helping to promote the industry and maintaining its standards. Members can access a range of commercial and administrative benefits, as well as share expertise and knowledge amongst members, which can be particularly helpful for problem-solving or ﬁnding products that may no longer be widely available.
